What We Stand For

Every company needs a purpose to exist, and it isn’t different at Waste2Wear. As a company, we know exactly what is the purpose that drives us to run our business and we are determined to achieve what we stand for.

At Waste2Wear, we believe we play a big role in cleaning our environment and making it a better place for everyone. That’s why we are pioneers in solutions for innovative plastic recycling and in delivering 100% traceable and sustainable textiles.

An astonishing eight million tons of plastic waste enters the oceans every year. This alarming information is unacceptable and we are determined to stop it by recycling plastic waste and creating smart and innovative solutions to solve this problem. This is what we stand for.

We believe that making the world a better place is not only about fighting plastic pollution, looking after the environment, and developing innovative plastic recycling methods. It is also about improving people’s lives. 

This belief has always motivated us to ensure responsible social practices in the communities where we operate. Together with our partners, we seek to turn plastic solutions into opportunities to create jobs that make people financially more robust and independent. 

Our projects aim to provide people with confidence in learning new skills. 

In 2018 Waste2Wear launched the Ocean Plastics Program along with the support of the Dutch Government, the Chinese Government, and universities. This program prevents additional plastic from ending up in the rivers and oceans. 

Waste2Wear will always be aiming to find innovative plastic recycling solutions and our team is currently developing new ways to recycle plastic waste. We do that by producing hard plastics from recycled materials, which can be used in the development of many useful sustainable products, and we also transform plastic waste into new textiles that have resulted in a wide range of high-quality fabrics for all kinds of applications.

Together we challenge
the industry and
make textile and
fashion a force for good
